Start-up is bringing innovative approach to online learning

Alumnus Sami Hasaballa is the Innovation Lead at Roctar, an e-learning platform looking to revolutionise online learning and teaching.

The 2020 International Business graduate is leading the start-up company, which has a strong focus on science.

Roctar offers an online platform with thousands of STEM experiments and gamified interfaces, including progression systems.

Sami says:

“We aim to bring science back to experimentation rather than focused on book-learning”.

A range of science kits – with themes including electricity, microscopy, and fossils – reinforce the online learning and allow young people to conduct hands-on experiments at home. Roctar also offers guided videos, and the online platform encourages participation through points-based challenges.
